Yield: 30 Clusters
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 Tsp Coconut Sugar
  • 1 Tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tsp maple syrup
  • Boiling Water

Instructions

  1. Bring your oven to a preheated temp. of 150 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a bowl combine the vanilla extract, maple syrup and coconut sugar. Stir until the three create a thick paste. Afterwards add a small amount of boiling water to thin out the paste, until it looks like a runny syrup.
  3. Dump in the pumpkin seeds and stir until each one is covered.
  4. Get out a backing sheet and place down parchment paper. Then like you would with cookie dough, take about a teaspoon full of coated pumpkin seeds and dallop them onto a baking sheet. Repeat until all the pumpkin seeds are grouped together in little sections.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Do not let the seeds burn, so check on them constently after the 10 minute mark. Allow the seeds to turn a golden brown hue.
  6. Take out the baking sheet, allow the clusters to cool down. You can press together the clusters so they form a ball. However, the clusters will cool off quickly.
  7. Once they've cool the clusters are ready to eat!
